CISM in Mining

In the Camp or the Tunnel

We don’t claim to know “mining”.  What we do know is emergency services (mine rescue), working in confined spaces (firefighting), coping with shiftwork, and keeping things bottled up too long.  In truth, the parallels between mining and emergency services are many.  We also know what it can feel like to be in a workplace where you feel undervalued.

Every workplace has an informal network of support within it.  Assisting Individuals in Crisis builds on a participant’s skills to help them provide meaningful, deliberate support.  If you are interested in learning more or starting a peer support program at your workplace, get in touch with us.  Do you really think waiting for management or the Union to do it for you is going to work out?  They can both use a little push.

The skills we teach will help you support colleagues when they are having a down day.  We have the knowledge and experience to help you get started.

Courses are always customized to include scenarios and role playing exercises relevant to the client’s field and needs.

We will be pleased to work with you and create customized content that will meet your organization’s needs.  Check the courses page for upcoming training and course descriptions.
